Her Perspective

IMG_0471 (2)

How big the world must look to one so young
With all its overflowing challenges;
A chasm most daunting // stretched and far flung;
It spreads in all directions and ranges.
From your high safe perch on that giant rock,
You might feel secure // a place to call home;
But, you know in the future you will walk
Across that river of life all alone.
How big the world seems sitting on a rock

  1. A beautiful poem for your granddaughter Dwight. The repetition of ‘how big the world seems’ is especially moving and it’s lovely to know that even if she has to cross the river of life alone there is a caring grandfather watching over her 💜
